days. 106 expected high temperature in the big "d." it will be 92 in kansas city and 80 in new york. that's cooler. 86 with storms in atlanta. some researchers out of the u.k. ali, want to share this story with you, you're a big movie buff and science guy at the same time, researchers out of the u.k. are calling for regulations to curb the integration of human genes basically with animal genes. they don't want to create a human animal, hybrid. who wants that? i can't help but think this has something to do with the release of the "planet of the apes" movie coming up in the beginning of august. called something like "rise of the apes." a popular show when i was a kid and i might see the movie in a couple weeks. >> do you know if we're anywhere down the road close to cloning human/animal cloning? >> we don't need a half man/half horse running around the office. we do use the genes for beneficial scientific uses to try to discover some cures of the diseases. >> it's always the fear someone will use it for the wrong thing. rob, good to see you. check in with you later on. rob marciano i
finally came out publicly with a bipartisan, big, tough plan, a framework for how to deal with our very real challenge with our record deficits and debt. it's my hope that the senate will consider cut, cap and be balance, defeat it and then put a responsible plan on the floor, one that shares the sacrifice across all the areas of our budget and that puts forward the kind of framework that everyone can support. bill: okay. on the cut, cap and balance, so you agree with harry reid that this is a waste of time on a balanced budget. why would a balanced budget amendment when polls show 72% of those surveyed favor it, why would you be opposed to that, senator? >> i don't speak for leader reid, obviously, but what i think the leader was suggesting was that with ten days left until we default on america's mortgage, we should be focusing on things that have a very real chance of passage in both houses and that can avoid the catastrophic consequences of defaulting on america's debt. i think leader reid and many of us in the senate are concerned that if we simply keep ping-ponging back and forth
it could be a big day for our whole entire country. >> and the news is whether we've got a deal or not. shortly after ten o'clock last night. harry reid said you know, i was going to have everybody show up in the mid feel the night and take a vote at 1 a.m. and he received word from the white house that apparently, the white house and this really hacks him off, you know, because it kind of bypasses him, and former speaker pelosi, dealing directly with mitch mcconnell, joe biden 6789 it sounds like they've got a deal, and close to a deal and some of of the frame work as well to talk about it. >> yeah, it looks like it's been going back and forth and take a look, it looks like debt ceiling increase, 1.2 trillion to 2.4 last night last through the night and living in my office, as high as 2.8 trillion dollars in debt ceiling increases, spending cuts have to be about the same amount commensurate. >> dollar for dollar. >> at least if not more. >> and guys, there's a little bit of wrangling whether or not that balanced budget amendment that john boehner needed so badly to get the house to vo
.m. this meeting last night came after word of a potential deal and a pretty big deal after word of a potential deal really stole the headlines yesterday afternoon and overnight. this would be, as i said, a pretty big deal. $3 trillion in deficit savings over ten years. and we only have a rough sketch of it. what is interesting, don, as you said, the white house is shooting this down. they say there is no deal. we heard jay carney shoot this down yesterday. the speaker's office is saying there is no deal but we have from congressional sources who are speaking on anonymity there is a framework. at 10:00 a.m. we will detail what the sources are telling us is in this potential agreement. >> only 10 1/2 days. thank you very much. we will be coming back to you throughout the day. >>> among an already crowded field of gop presidential candidates, a new cnn/orc poll suggests that texas governor rick perry may want to throw his hat into the ring too. mr. paul steinhauser joins us live from washington. >> rick perry is thinking about jumping into the white house and could do it. stay tuned on that. the
is anything more than a big wet kiss to the right wing, and -- and i mean the tea party. that's who i mean. it's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people. >> what will happen between this very moment and a potential vote tomorrow is anyone's guess in the town that is washington, d.c. amid all the bickering and tinkering, the nation is just six days away from a first ever general default, and the treasury reiterating in a statement moments ago there is no guarantee the government can meet all its obligations after an august 2nd deadline, so what are the remaining options for our dysfunctional government? nbc's kristen welker is at the white house and let's also bring in luke russert on capitol hill. kristen, we know both sides are crafting their budget deals, both trying to take the high road, but are there any signs that the differences between the two sides are narrowing, and does it seem as though they may conflate these two plans? >> reporter: well, at this point we don't have any indication that they are going to conflate the two plans. we should say there are, of c
. >>> the big business of gay marriage. one day before same sex couples tie the knot in new york, how some companies are planning to cash in. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm alex witt. welcome to msnbc saturday. we have two developments in two deadly attacks carried out in norway that left 91 people dead. police have one man in custody suspected in both attacks. one was a bomb set off in downtown oslo, and the other happened not long after when a gunman went on a shooting spree at a teen summer camp at an island outside of oslo. martin fletcher joins me on the phone from oslo. martin, let's talk about what police are revealing about the suspect. what do they know? >> reporter: well, alex, he's 32 years old, and he's a norwegian. interestingly on his facebook page he updated his facebook page just a week ago, and on that he called himself a conservative and he called himself a christian and he said his favorite hobby was hunting. so this paints a picture of a man who seems to be -- well, how can you describe such a person? radical of some kind. the police are saying it looks like it was the
probing with the white house the possibility of a big deal that would be nearly $4 trillion in deficit reduction and include $800 billion in added tax revenues over the next ten years. if he goes this route, i am told he will face a revolt from his republicans on the house including his fellow leaders including kevin mccarthy, i'm told he is still considering it even though it's risky. >> treasury secretary tim geithner joins me now. he would have to manage the chaos if the united states defaults for the first time in history. secretary geithner, thank you for being here. well, you just heard what jonathan said about what'ss on the table. is it possible that there will be a framework deal in place by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. >> i hope so. again, both leaders recognize they're running out of time. they need to get this process moving in the house by monday night to achieve that deadline. they need to have a framework that they know with complete confidence will pass both houses of congress and is acceptable to the president and that should happen today. >> you think it can happen befor
& friends" starts right now. >>dave: good saturday, everyone, a big news saturday. we thought the heat would be the big story. but anything but. a very serious matter. good to have you here for alisyn. >> all hell breaking loose in many parts of the world including in norway. >> we have new information of the shooting in the shotting massacre and bombing that happened hours apart in norway. >> this as the death toll from the attacks has gone up to 91. and greg is leave in london. greg? >>greg: we have been tracking this story through the night and hour by hour it is worse and worse and the words, the gunman as he shot the victims "you all must die," describing the scene, the prime minister, he turned paradise into hell. and now the events of the shocking attack right now. police now say that 84 people were killed on the island 20 miles from the capital of norway, one of the worst mass shooting sprees in history. the gunman was dressed as a policeman calling teens to come closer and then tee towns the guns on him, machine guns, rifles and pistols and the kids ran, hid, played dead, and tried
get to be big, big problems. >> so those are some of the warnings signs, or are there warning signs that you are taking in -- that you are just too hot? >> i did get all the way to eventually the first stages of heat stroke one time in my life in nebraska when i was working outside. the first thing you need to do, obviously, drink all the water you can. if you feel crap thats in your legs or stomach, that means you are not getting that water, and you will feel not first but cramps. that's the first step. and then after that, if you feel like you can't just stand up anymore -- when i got to the point, i could not drive my car home. somebody had to drive me home because i could not function. my brain would not function at all. at 104 degrees you're in a heat stroke, and you need medical attention because you are vomiting. if you start to vomit, you need to get out of the heat and get your body temperature taken down. if you are not sweating anymore, you need to go to the hospital. >> what about the fact that it got so hot so fast? has that made a difference in a case like this? >> no
backed bill included big spending cuts, a cap on spending and a constitutional amendment. >> it's a correct approach. this is fundamentally a spending problem. >> it passed in the house earlier this house. >> this vote the yeas are the 34. >> today majority leader harry reid grudgingly scheduled a senate vote. it failed just as he predicted. >> this is a very, very bad piece of legislation. >> today's vote could clear the way for one of several compromise deals. >> we all know mr. president there are talks going on between president obama and speaker boehner. >> this was a bit of hope yesterday when "the new york times" reported a possible deal between president obama and house speaker boehner. both sides quickly denied it. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. >> there is no deal. no deal publicly, no deal privately. there is absolutely no deal. >> but he didn't say they're not talking about it. >> we've got to keep the lines of communication open. we talked about fall back options if in fact cut, cap and balance does go down. i do think that it's our obligation to h
. if they manage to defeat this vote today, this is going to be a big, big problem for markets. if they don't, you may see markets continue to tread water until there is a solution to this. now, remember, speaker boehner's plan is not likely one that is going to pass the senate. not likely one that is going to get past the president. the bottom line if there is some sense boehner has better control of h over hi members you may see markets allowing a little bit more time. right now markets are largely relaxing but ready to move if this doesn't go the right way. >> thanks, guys. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we will go to wall street for the opening bell and answer a question many of us have right now -- should we take our money out of the stock exchange and where do we put it if so. we will talk to a financial analyst about that. >>> cnn obtained dramatic new video taken minutes after the bombing of the government buildings in norway. it was shot by a hamburg who works in oslo and driving through a tunnel beneath the city's government plaza when the bomb went off. eight people killed. he recorded
>> huh. >> but obviously it was a bad attack. but a big, sophisticated attack is how this official is putting it. and they also said it could be international, or it could be domestic norwegian. again, very early to make that assumption or that conclusion. >> right. early hours, a lot of information still to come out. i appreciate it. . let's continue this breaking news coverage with my colleague wolf blitzer. >>> a bombing shatters norway to its core. and a shooting at a youth camp. president obama asking for a dialling back of the demonizing. ten days before the deadline, one republican plan gets a firm smackdown in the u.s. senate. and some surprising new movement in the republican presidential race. we're going to tell you who's suddenly making a strong impression on potential voters. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room." the breaking news this hour, a city known for peace making is reeling in terror. norwegian leaders holding a crisis meeting tonight after a deadly bomb attack in oslo and the shooting at a labor party youth camp outside the norwegian capital. at least seve
of the midwest. >>> those power companies are asking people to conserve where they can. >> gregg: big question when can folks expect relief from this sticky heat. meteorologist maria molina in the extreme weather center? >> depending on where you live. in you live in the upper midwest or northeast you are expected to get relief. parts in the southern plains, oh man, texas and dallas, texas and triple-digits for days to come. parts in the southeast are not expecting any relief. northern parts, a cold front is going through the region but 95 in new york city. and it feels like 101 in new york. 106 is dallas, texas. so those dangerous levels of heat and humidity. there are a number of affected heat warnings out for those areas shaded in red also across portions of the midwest. that is where we could see heat index values up to 120 degrees. take a look at them from yesterday. 124 in wilmington, delaware and many other areas are looking at extremely high heat index values. throughout the great lakes it is going to produce some severe weather. as we head into tomorrow, it will look better but still
, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co
care a lot about. they have basically yielded to republicans on a big conceptual point. linking, lifting the debt ceiling to spending cuts and -- >> two things republicans still want. a dollar for dollar cut in spending to match a debt ceiling increase and a trigger mechanism for a balanced budget amendment. holding out ideologically. speaker boehner when asked about the reid plan earlier. let's listen. >> i believe that the plan is full of gimmicks. we're not making any real changes in the spending structure of our government, and it doesn't deal with the biggest drivers of our deficit and our debt, and that would be entitlement programs. >> the republicans-- >> they're not touching that either. putting it to the side now. >> how can he say that, then? >> they have forgotten the number one rule of hostagetaking. when the other sides gives into your demands you let the hostage go. i don't think they're interested in doing that. at least 100 members on the house republican side want to blow up the economy because they think they will save the economy. >> and they're certainly wil
-term deal. let's look for the big fix. the president says, luke, let's go for the big fix and now the republicans are going, wait a minute. what gives? luke. >> politics is the art of the possible. a lot of folks on capitol hill feel right now that a short-term solution is the only thing possible because of the eight-day time window that you mentioned. that being said, there are two very different plans which you talked about in the introduction which are going through capitol hill right now. speaker boehner plan is going to have an extension, which gets us through the wipter. i'm told that speaker boehner's going to brief his house republican conference at 2:00 p.m. about the details of that plan. won't get extremely specific. then for all intensive purposes it looks from discussions i've had with certain aides that you can see as early as wednesday a house of representatives votes on speaker boehner's plan. harry reid is going to go his own way with a $2.7 trillion reduction plan across the board. both of these contessa are different than any of the grand bargains. reid's extend
and ohio. but as big of an obama fans he is, he's prepared to not lift a finger to help the president get re-elected if the white house backs cuts to medicare, medicaid or social security. >> it's so personal for me because when we talk about cuts to medicare, medicaid and social security, i think of my 90-year-old grandmother. she lives on social security and any cut to that social security check or any rise in her medicare premiums, that's a direct cut to her -- to what she needs to live on. it's 101 degrees right now. that means that she's going to be forced to pay more -- or pay more withless. and that's last thing we need to be doing in economic times like this. >> he works for the progressive change campaign committee a group that delivered to the obama campaign office 200,000 pledges from former supporters saying if you touch social programs, we're out. bu entitlements are still on the table. many liberals and democrats feel president obama is giving away their sacred cows, while not insisting republicans concede on tax increases. >> unfortunately or fortunately, you're going to ne
do if they had a lot of time. they don't have a lot of time right now. >> that's the big question and the big factor at the center of all of this. they don't have a lot of time and they need to move both of these through both chambers of congress and somehow reconcile them, how they're going to do that. >> let me go back to the white house. it looks like these two plans, they're obviously a senate plan by majority leader harry reid and house plan by speaker john boehner. does the white house feel sidelined or left out of thf process? >> i had this question, too, and i talked with one official who said the president can't be sidelined. he is the president. he has the power of the veto pen. he's the one who says ultimately if something moves. although inthe thought is if he was given a plan that could get through congress, i think the thought is how could he do anything but sign it? but certainly the president and the white house have been very much in touch with senate democrats and the roll right now is that senate majority leader harry reid is pretty much the president's lifeline
the northeast will see a big relief from these hot temperatures back to normal with a high of 82°. texas, still expecting triple digit highs 103 in dallas. raleigh, north carolina still above average high at 95. >> arthel: it stays hot at night, i know here in new york. people who are healthy and strong, they are becoming overwhelmed by the heat. >> very important to stay safe. some areas during this heatwave their nighttime lows with were hotter than their daytime average high temperatures. the entire day throughout the overnight hours they were looking at temperatures above average. it is incredible how massive and powerful this past heatwave was. fortunately, almost over for some folks. >> rick: a lot of people look to go into the water to find relief from this heat. you have to be safe. there's a search underway in western wisconsin after two boats collided. two people were killed in the crash. one from each boat. two men are still missing both in their 20s. one was arrested. another three sent to local hospitals. police say people onboard had gathered for an upcoming wedding. they are look
in chicago. 105 in kansas city. 108 in houston, texas. we have this big dome or big area of high pressure that's been sitting over the nation's mid-section in the east just baking. that's where you're seeing this heat building. this stretches miles into the atmosphere and that's why we call at it dome. it looks like those covers you put over your dinner plate. it looks like that. that cooler air finally drift southward. that's why we're seeing showers and thunderstorms along the cold front but make it feel better and boston and say new york city as we head into tomorrow. let's do show you a couple of those thunderstorms. here's our radar map to see where they have been blowing on through across the upper midwest, throughout the great lakes and cleveland just about to get hit there as well. a few of these thunderstorms can be severe, ton. mainly wind makers and maybe some hail. >> thank you, jacqui jeras. we have some developing news for you. working in washington where lawmakers and president obama are trying to reach a deal on raising the debt ceiling. there could possibly be some moveme

[laughter] i'm an atheist, and in dangerousville, ohio, in 2008 you asserted that no organization receiving taxpayer funds would be able to discriminate in hiring or firing based on a person's religion. however, you have not rescinded the executive order that permits this type of discrimination. in a time of economic hardship when it's difficult for a person to get a job based on her skills, what would you say to a woman who has been denied employment because of her religion or lack of religious beliefs by a taxpayer-funded organization? >> well, this is a very difficult issue, but a more narrow one than i think might be implied. it's very straightforward that people shouldn't be discriminated against for race, gender, sexual orientation and/or religious affiliation. what has happened is that there has been a carve outdating back to president clinton's presidency. for religious organizations in their hiring for particular purposes. and this is always a tricky part of the first amendment. on the on

their troops and they had a lot of support there from some pretty big members of congress, people like senator jim demint was up there essentially saying if the senate and the house don't agree to some sort of debt ceiling. so this was some pretty tough talk and i also had a chance, this was also a good place for republican presidential candidates to show up. i also had a chance to talk to herrmann cane who was there at this rally and he said something very interesting, they don't think that the country will go into default. they believe that the white house has the flexibility come august 2 if we hit the debt ceiling to pick and choose which programs get funded. social security checks might get money, but the environmental protection agency might not for example. so he feels and a lot of other tea party republicans who are up there also say that this is a manufactured crisis, by the white house to scare the american people. these are his words, herrmann cane's words, not mine. >> have heard several other movement leaders within the tea party saying the exact same thing that august 3 will be n
